Brief Answer:
PCOS is most likely cause.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

PCOS , as mentioned in your previous query , is the most likely cause for the amenorrhea ( absence of menses) which you are currently experiencing. PCOS is associated with hormonal imbalance and is associated with irregular or absent periods. Obesity and excess body hair are also associated with PCOS.

Norethisterone and Ethinyloestradiol combos like Penorit can be taken , 1 tablet twice for two consecutive days. You will get your period within 3 to 6 days. Oral Contraceptives should be used to regularize the menstrual cycle , thereafter.

Yes , Candida ( yeast ) infections can lead to menstrual abnormalities and present as absence of periods.

wishing you best of health.
